Generate power while you walk – it’s possible! A poster on piezoelectric materials, a University of Groningen specialism, was presented at the Science at the Heart of Society seminar. Joep Heusschen, an Industrial Engineering and Management student, and Leonora Verveld, a secondary school student at Praedinius Gymnasium, put together the information for the poster on piezoelectric sustainable energy. Their supervisor was Prof. Beatriz Noheda Pinuaga.
